Simple Serenity

The new baby giraffe at Hogle Zoo. It's hard to be a baby.

Random Red Butte Shots

Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from a recent outing to Red Butte Gardens in Salt Lake City. This is definitely one of my favorite places to go and photograph random things. As seen below, you never know what you'll see...

Fall is in full swing!

Here are some shots from Millcreek Canyon earlier this week before the cold hit like a ton of bricks. This is one of my favorite times of the year!

This is a shot of some smoke coming across the road. I liked how it looked with the way the sun was hitting it.

A Bad Experience Made Good

Although I prefer to take scenic photos, I have been known to take portraits on occasion. I don't know if I could ever do it as my full time job, however. I spent a very long 4 months working at JC Penney's portrait studio where I learned a lot about taking portraits. It can be very difficult to get the perfect shot and kids can be especially hard to work with.

When I found out my friend Kelly had had a less-than-satisfactory experience with a "photographer" recently and saw the photos as evidence, I insisted she let me attempt to do better. It couldn't be hard - the photographs she received were terrible. Here are a few of the 300 some-odd shots I got of their cute little family. I must say that out of the three of them, Christian (the little boy) did the best! He was the perfect little model. I'd gladly take his picture any day!
I love the look Kelly is giving Brendan in this one.
Next stop, GQ Magazine!

I love flowers. I recently entered this photo in the state fair and won an honorable mention. Need to get planning next year's entries! These are a few from my recent hike up to Mount Timpanogas. For other photos of our trek, visit my other blog here.

Welcome to Photography by MCF!

After doing a combined family/photography blog for a year (to check it out, click here), I decided it might be a good idea to separate them. I love sharing my new photographs with everyone and it's hard to balance that between all of the family outings and updates. Hopefully, this will serve as my creative outlet to post my photography!

It should also be said that any photos posted on this site are available to order as prints, just contact me at mfarnsworth1AThotmailDOTcom if you are interested. I'm not out there to rip anyone off with my prints, so please do not steal my photos. Definitely NOT cool. I'm happy to share my pictures with anyone who is wanting a little piece of my art, so if you want one, JUST ASK!
Here are some recent shots taken at the State Fair.
